Rosa-Maria Nuutinen (b. Hämeenlinna, Finland) is a London based artist working with a several medium based practice including drawing, photography, creative writing and film. As a core of her work Nuutinen is concerned by the ideas of our current society’s impact on people and on the environment.
Nuutinen considers our society’s connection and disconnection towards ourselves, our bodies, other people and the alternative places to be and exist in response to those. Her work explores the notion of absence and the act of trying to preserve something, resulting in both fictional and dystopian narratives. These existential experiences come across as gooey biotechnological insides and savouring a sauna moment with your old wrinkly grandmother.
Concepts such as cyborg bodies and biotechnology are present within the work. Nuutinen is interested by the idea that humans, in order to maintain our excessive life style, have to rely heavily on technology and keep creating complex technological mechanisms. In the hopes of continuing to live and to conserve our environment.
